Scrutiny Councillors from across the six local authorities will meet again on 27 February.  The purpose of the group is to help ensure the best educational outcomes for children in the Education Through Regional Working (ERW) region by supporting effective scrutiny to

  1. support consistent scrutiny across the six councils
  2. share scrutiny good practice
  3. encourage shared scrutiny approaches and avoid the duplication of scrutiny work
  4. provide critical and objective challenge to ERW on topics of interest as required
  5. contribute to the good and effective governance of ERW

Councillors on the 27 February will

  • share their individual scrutiny work programmes
  • Business Plan, Estyn Inspection updates
  • Look at the role of portfolio holders in the oversight of ERW
  • Look at School Governance across the region

The Councillor Group will then write a letter to the ERW Joint Committee feeding back their thoughts and recommendations arising from this meeting.

The papers are available on our website at www.swansea.gov.uk/scrutinypublications .
